The AWS Cloud Architect program focuses on designing highly available, reliable, and resilient systems and networks using AWS infrastructure. It covers availability zones, regions, building for resiliency, business objectives, security, monitoring, reacting, and recovering. Learners will also understand the differences between traditional data centers and cloud infrastructure and how to design, provision, and monitor infrastructure using open-source tools. Additionally, the program covers cost and monitoring, high performance, servers and security groups, storage and databases, and securing access to cloud services and infrastructure. Throughout the program, learners will practice designing for performance and scalability, recovering from failure, and securing cloud infrastructure.
